It’s hotter than you-know-where outside and several dozen youngsters are frolicking on the grass at Pace University’s Center for Literacy Enrichment on the Pace Law School campus in White Plains. The hose and inflated pool are popular. The youths are there about the serious business of reading, but a little fun never hurts as Sister Mary St. John Delany, the center’s director, well knows and she stands boldly close to the action.
Interview with Sister St. John Delany about her interesting life including an audience before Pope John XXIII and a trip to Antarctica. Also, includes a description of the Center for Literacy Enrichment annual summer camp and a description of a previous writing program for teens.
